Hey everyone. Jody Jamieson here with coverage of Bellator 179. Yes, I know it's not live. So this is your spoiler free coverage of the card as live on UK TV. Anyone who posts spoilers, you're a terrible person and your parents don't love you.

If you want to watch in the UK, it's on Spike TV UK starting in a couple of minutes. Moves to Channel 5 at 10pm.

Paul Daley faces Rory Macdonald in the main event. Rory makes his Bellator debut tonight, and the winner will fight for the Welterweight Title after Bellator 180.

There's a couple of prelim fights being shown on Spike TV starting now.

The rest of the main card. An all England showdown between Liam McGeary and Linton Vassell is the co-main after Michael Page vs Derek Anderson fell out. Cheick Kongo takes on Augusto Sakai, and "Baby Slice" Kevin Ferguson Jr faces Darryal Griffin. Kimbo Slice was booked for London before his sad passing. Emotional night for the youngster.

Interview with Baby Slice just now. His fight with Darryal Griffin is next.

DJ Griffin. That's easier to spell. Just into the cage.

Nice reception in the Wembley Arena for Baby Slice.
